former prime minister sirjohn major says the house of commons should be given a vote on all brexit options. sirjohn told the bbc allowing mps to indicate their preferred alternative to theresa may's deal, which mps rejected this week, might help break the deadlock. the shadow brexit secretary, sir keir starmer, has called on mrs may to cut a deal with the eu that keeps the uk close to it. he also warned that labour had to be ready to campaign for a fresh referendum. our political correspondent alex forsyth reports. when it comes to brexit, there are strong arguments on all sides but, as yet, no agreement.
some think one way through would be a series of votes in parliament if she cannot deliver one that parliament accepts, then she needs to become a facilitator and mediator to find out what parliament will accept. i personally would hope she would put down a series of motions so that members of parliament can indicate their preference. in here there is deep division about what should happen now theresa may's plan for brexit has been emphatically rejected. one mp is trying to force the government to let parliament indicate its view with a series of non—binding votes. the key thing is to bring into play what has not been brought into play up to now and that is, does the house of commons have a view on the direction the government should now take? some mps are trying to seize control
of this process from the government to give parliament the power to force a delay to brexit if no consensus can be reached. today, labour's shadow brexit secretary said a pause now seems inevitable and, if no agreement can be reached, that is what we are about. so far, the prime minister has been against that option in. her 93.1“. eel—qt; agreed—r against backtracking or delay.
on monday, the prime minister must make a statement signalling her next steps but despite talk of compromise, it is not yet clear who is prepared to budge. alex forsyth, bbc news. but if the brexit deadlock isn't resolved, there are fewer than 70 days to go until the uk is set to leave the eu on march 29th. northern ireland and the republic of ireland stand to be most affected if there is no deal in place. 0ur correspondent emma vardy has spoken to people living along the irish border. the brexit deadline is fast approaching. it is the main conversation, you know, what it is going to mean to different businesses. people are still on edge because they cannot see what the outcome is going to be. when this near invisible land border becomes the uk's new frontier with the eu,
communities on one side will be in a different regime to the other. this road is split - the middle by. border. this road is split - the middle by . border. after brexit you by the border. after brexit you would be outside the eu and i would be inside it. the so—called backstop has been the biggest roadblock. it. ie the glen. thet meg leeee " to avoid new checks on this border. it is opposed by many brexiteers at westminster and northern ireland's democratic unionist party, but supported by many people living around here. when-are when - are a third country, there are checks that have to occur at an external border and the backstop meant those checks would occur elsewhere. there has been promises by both the british and irish governments that this border will be kept as open as it is today, but until there is a clear agreement in westminster, many people here believe a no—deal brexit is now
a real possibility. south of the border, in the republic of ireland, they are watching developments closely. ireland says it will not impose a ha rd blow ireland says it will not impose a hard blow order, the uk says it would, do you believe them? -- hard border. there has to be the clarification of import tariffs. border. there has to be the clarification of import tariffsm could happen by default. it is the default position and it is up to parliament to come up with an alternative. with time running out, the coming days at westminster may bring a defining moment for this island. emma vardy, bbc news, carlingford. in the last hour, president trump has put forward a number of proposals to break the shutdown in the us government. these include $800 million for humanitarian relief as part of a package to secure billions of dollars to build a wall on the mexican border. at least 66 people have been killed and more than 70 injured in a huge
explosion at a leaking oil pipeline in central mexico. it's thought the pipe — north of mexico city — was breached deliberately by thieves trying to steal fuel. richard galpin has the details. his report does contain with this huge fire enveloping the area, people screamed for help but many didn't make it. there were lots of people around. with fuel spurting out of a pipe which had been deliberately ruptured beitdeeeegs;t:,. there are currently fuel shortages in the country. despite the danger, soldiers
at the scene allegedly did nothing to warn people. translation: i believe that these lives would've been saved if the soldiers had done theirjobs to remove people and not let them get close. they did nothing. they were there in groups, but they never said, "get away, because it could cause an explosion." a policy of mexico's new president, lopez obrador, is causing the acute fuel shortages. he has ordered that key pipelines be shut down until they can be properly protected from thieves that frequently tap into the country's fuel supplies. and this devastating fire is not going to change the policy, which means the large loss of life here may be followed by other deadly incidents. richard galpin, bbc news. the duke of edinburgh has been seen driving again, just two days after he was involved in a serious accident.
prince philip, who's 97, was seen by several photographers entering the queen's sandringham estate in his new car from the public highway. on thursday he was involved in a dramatic car crash on a nearby road where his vehicle overturned. our royal correspondent, jonny dymond, joins me now. and more details are emerging tonight? more details every hour as we go on. one of the women who was in the car that was struck in the collision has been identified and she has given an interview to a sunday paper. emma fairweather is 45 years old, she had her wrist broken in the collision. she was on the passenger side of the kia. she is apparently still very upset about the accident, unsurprisingly, and says that the palace has not been in touch. the palace has not been in touch. the palace did say it had been in touch with both the driver and the passenger yesterday. as you say, the

that their patients need. the nhs wants to get an additional 5000 gps into practice. far more are being trained than a decade ago but the royal college of gps says there are still 6000 short and surgeries are under pressure. we are still struggling to get enough gps to fill in the posts. we are having to rely a lot on locums. there are some places that keep advertising and get nobody. it is a nice area but we still can't get people to come in and do the work. places with fewer elderly people and children may need fewer gps but the variation in cover raises questions about how resources are being allocated. richard lister, bbc news. today poland bid farewell to pawel adamowicz, the liberal mayor of gdansk who was stabbed on stage at a charity event last sunday. police say about 16,000 people turned out for a funeral mass. large screens set up around the city, relayed the service. he'd led the city for 20 years. the comedy actor’w'rnijstrrﬂevies
